Get To Know

Fleur Mouchemore, Senior Consultant

What are you most passionate about in your role at JOST&Co?

I am passionate about learning and leadership development, and about supporting wellbeing and resilience.

I love learning. I’m also fulfilled by sharing what I’ve discovered with others and helping them to learn, grow, discover and develop their unique set of strengths and potential to support their growth and development.

My other passion is to help organisations, leaders and individuals do things better when it comes to wellbeing and resilience – including having effective, positive work design principles in place. Because of the devastating impact poor wellbeing in the workplace can have, I think improving wellbeing and resilience in line with evidence based practice must remain a priority.

What career journey have you taken to get here?

I spent the first decade of my career in customer service roles. When I was 30, I took a few months off work and travelled around Australia. During that trip I reflected on what was next for me and decided to go to university to study teaching as a mature aged student. In the final year of my degree, I realised that I wanted to work with adults rather than in schools. So after I completed my degree, I took on a leadership role at BP. From there I moved into L&D roles, eventually managing the Learning and Development team. I also continued studying, earning my masters degree in learning and development, and also completing a graduate certificate in executive coaching.

After spending 15 years at BP, my role was made redundant. That change gave me the impetus to start consulting. After freelancing for a time, I joined JOST&Co nearly three years ago.

What’s the best bit of career advice you’ve received?

It came from my parents – do what you enjoy. If you focus on what you enjoy, rather than other drivers, you can achieve a sustainable career. It’s been true for me.

What do you love to do when you’re not at work?

I love camping. We are a big camping family and we go off grid and detox from technology as often as possible. We always take our Hungarian Vizsla, Daisy, with us because we wouldn’t be without all the entertaining quirks she brings to our family.

What’s something few people know about you?

When I travelled around Australia for a few months it was on the back of my motorcycle.
